We still don't know what hatched out of the cocoon on A.I.M. Island. S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Avengers finally know that the signal that's been messing things up is coming from Perth. That signal finally reaches it's intended target. A group of Skrull ships arrive in orbit. A big huge robot arrives as well.

This issue wasn't bad, I mean all of these individual scenes were pretty good by themselves. Having said that, there didn't seem to be a great deal of cohesiveness. There were great solo moments, but this issue lackedf the feeling of a singular story -- at least from my perspective.

I'm pretty sure that the big huge robot IS what hatched out of the cocoon on A.I.M. Island.

OK, yeah, I missed that the first read -- thanks guys.

However, why are you both blacking your words in a thread that's clearly marked as a spoiler thread? :smt102

So Triathlon did nothing this issue? I thought Busiek was developing him as a character.

Things keep happening! The pace of Jonathan Hickman’s Avengers has been pretty slow up until now, but in these last 2 issues, it may have become too fast! The Avengers are fighting a load of bugs, they are sending a signal to some robots, AIM have unleashed an even bigger robot, Captain Universe is saying some doom-laden stuff and warps her and Manifold to some unknown planet, and then a ship of bloody Skrulls crash-land on Earth! That’s not even mentioning that somehow all of this ties in to Thanos and Infinity.

There’s a lot going on here, and it could all get a bit too confusing, but thankfully, Hickman and Nick Spencer use this to good effect, as the Avengers themselves are confused and don’t know what’s going on. All they can do is fight the creepy, copulating bug-things, and all we can do is enjoy that fight and speculate.

Stefano Caselli’s artwork was brilliant again, I loved those pages with the concentric circles representing the mysterious signal, it’s a simple technique, but it looked damn cool and effective. I also really liked that one splash of all of the Avengers posing after they defeated the bugs. It’s the first time in a while we’ve seen that many Avengers all in one place, and it was bad-ass. Especially as they immediately undercut it by having even more problems land on their heads. There’s no rest for this team!

I have little to no idea what’s going on in this book at the moment, but it’s enjoyable. I really do think that Hickman is doing a better job at balancing his endgame with immediate enjoyment here than he did on Fantastic Four. Oh yeah, and can I just say that Hickman and Spencer write a damn good Superior Spider-Man, he’s such a dick!

Did they explain the critical story element that required Natasha's breasts to expand to pontoon-size ?

This is another ho hum issue. I'm sticking with it at this point but it's not being very well developed. There feels like a lot of things are happening off panel.
